Weekly Update 15 October 2021

Dear Friends,

Rule of Law principles provide a valuable framework for scrutiny of legislation, policy and practice, whether the context is emergencies such as the Coronavirus pandemic, or longstanding challenges facing society.

This week, we bring you news of our engagement with UK Coronavirus legislation, Black History Month and the UK legal profession, European debates about rebuilding the Rule of Law in illiberal democracies and reviewing counter-terrorism legislation across the continent, and a new podcast series launched by the Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre, which the Bingham Centre leads.

We also invite you to look out for two upcoming events. On 19th October, our Director, Murray Hunt, will speak at the launch of a new policy briefing by the Foreign Policy Centre and the Westminster Foundation for Democracy: Global Britain for an open world? Examining the importance of open societies to the UK's 'force for good' ambitions. On 9th November, we invite you to join us for a panel discussion on The Politics and Policymaking of Encryption, with senior speakers from the worlds of technology and law enforcement. Please scroll down to the end of your email for further details and to register for these free webinars.
